Subbed grilled peaches for tomatoes in this Caprese themed sandwich. Whether you keep it cold or toss it on the grill to toast the bread and melt the cheese, you can't go wrong here.
The key is fresh ripe peaches.
They get even better when they're grilled, they are so juicy and bring so much flavor to the sandwich.
Our basil plant has been booming lately so recipes with basil are at the top of my list. Peaches and basil is a killer yet underrated combination, commonly overshadowed by tomatoes but don't count them out!
I almost always reach for thinly sliced sour dough for sandwiches. Sour dough is one of the healthiest breads you can find. It's typically made with very simple, clean ingredients, it's easier to digest than other breads since it's lower in gluten and since it's fermented it acts as a probiotic and is good for your gut!

Homemade Garlic Aioli, linking the recipe here
Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat and spray with nonstick spray. Grill peach slices on skillet about 2 min/side or until you start to get grill marks. Remove peaches and set aside.
Thinly slice cooked chicken breast.
Lightly toast sour dough- can use skillet, toaster or oven.
Spread garlic aioli on both slices of bread.
Alternate layering sliced chicken, mozzarella, basil and peach slices.
Top everything with a heavy drizzle of balsamic glaze.
Secure with top slice of bread, slice in half and enjoy.
Optional: If you would prefer a warm sandwich, omit toasting the bread in the beginning and toast it after assembly until it is heated through and the cheese starts to melt.
